Many AUBG students asked me where and how to rent a car in Blagoevgrad.
I googled a lot before I decided to rent a car with Sofia Auto. The company is probably the only company in Blago which offers rental cars with no minimum rental period.
The cheapest car is the Chevrolet Spark and the Opel Corsa. Both cost 70 € and according to their manuals they both have the same horsepower and nearly the same space. I’d say the Chevrolet is a little bit better and has a little bit more space.
Most of the cars offered by Sofia Auto are manuals. Make sure you know how to drive a manual before you rent one. If you don’t, ask them for an automatic (e.g the Chevrolet Aveo, 90 €/weekend)
To rent one car of them you should better call them instead of sending emails, the form on their website often doesn’t work. They speak little english but enough to understand them.
You need to be at least 22 years old and have a european or international driving license. They will ask you to send a copy of your license and passport.

The pick up place of the car is Vasil Levski 61. Tell the cab driver to drive you to “Opel Service at Vasil Levski”. They will know where it is.
